Ahead of the global availability of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards, AMD pre-emptively slashed US$10 off the Radeon RX 470 and Radeon RX 460 graphics cards. Here are the full details of the AMD Radeon RX 470 and RX 460 price cuts…
Radeon RX 470 & RX 460 Price Cuts
The AMD Radeon RX 470 will be available for as low as US$169 starting October 23, 2016. This is US$10 down from its launch price of US$179. This narrows its price premium over the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (launch price of US$139) down to US$40.
The AMD Radeon RX 460 will be available for as low as US$99 starting October 23, 2016. This is US$10 down from its launch price of US$109. This puts it head-to-head against the GeForce GTX 1050, albeit with twice as much memory – 4 GB.
The AMD Advantage
- All Radeon RX graphics cards are optimized for DX12 and Vulkan.
- Asynchronous Compute, exclusively supported by the GCN or Polaris architectures, breaks up complex game workloads into smaller tasks that can run more quickly in parallel, extracting “free” performance from the GPU
- AMD’s open source FreeSync technology is the industry’s choice for Adaptive Frame Synchronization, offering smooth, affordable gaming with support for HDMI and DisplayPort technology.
- FreeSync monitors are significantly more accessible – starting at US$129 compared with US$379 for G-Sync – and with 126 FreeSync monitors available compared with only 86 G-Sync monitors, Radeon users have more choice
